, and wayne lapierre, head of the national rifle association, kelly and laperriere, only on fox news sunday and senate republicans go after one of their former colleagues who wants to be defense secretary. >> we write, that is a direct question, i expect a direct answer, yes or no. >> chris: we'll ask the panel if chuck hagel's nomination is in trouble and our power player of the week, a cheerleader for poetry, all right now on fox news sunday. >> chris: and, hello, again, from fox news in washington. president obama travels to minneapolis tomorrow to con his push for new gun control. and saturday the white house released this picture of the president skeet shooting at camp david which he says he does all the time. meanwhile, the national rifle association is fighting any new limits on guns. the first big legislative battle this year and today we will cover it in-depth. we'll talk with wayne lapierre, head of the nra in a moment. but, first, mark kelly, retired astronaut, navy captain and husband of former congresswoman gabrielle giffords who was shot two years ago. he and his wife launched
not dealt with. >> this could be another new problem for some moderate voter, wayne lapierre, he runs the nra. i want to read you a snippet of this op-ed piece. "after hurricane sandy we saw the hellish world that the gun prohibitionists see as their utopia, looters ran wild in south brooklyn." didn't happen. "there was food, water, electricities, hurricanes, tornadoes, riots, terrorists, gangs, lone criminals, these are perils we are sure to face. not just maybes. it's not paranoia to buy a gun, it's survival, responsible behavior and it's time we encourage law-abiding americans to do just that." many including joe scarborough said the op-ed was laced with "racial overtones" among other things. what is wayne lapierre doing for the republican party? >> wayne lapierre is representing his organization. whether he's trying to fold into his organization. >> long identified with the gop. >> there's a difference between the nra and the rnc. he's doing what he's paid to do and representing it. the nice thing the democrats are doing are lopping the two groups together so i do understand that
was shot with a bullet after round number 13. >>chris: as you know, wayne lapierre will be on the next segment and he says we had an assault weapons ban for 10 years. it didn't work. >>guest: well, i don't know if it worked or not. i haven't looked at all the statistics. much more difficult forat if it criminals and the mentally ill to get assault weapons and lie-capacity magazines and guns in general, we will save lives. i served in the military for 25 years. i know the value of having an assault weapon. a gun that can kill many people many quickly. i do not believe the average person on the shoot including criminals and terrorists should have easy access to those weapons. in cases of mass shootings when an assault weapon has been used we know we typically twice the number are shot so more people are died than injureed. there are already 9,000 federal laws on the books but they are not enforced. >> i agree with mr. lapierre on that point laws that are not enforced. 1.7 million have failed background checks since 1999 and not enough are prosecuted. they should be prosecuted and there s
's an unstated irony in this as well. that lindsey graham knows full well, wayne lapierre knows full well, gayle trotter knows full well and sheldon whitehouse asked a question which lapierre ducked. if you talk to hard core members of the nra, they will admit, as senator whitehouse said, they will admit you don't need an ar-15 to defend your home or go hunting or go target shooting or anything else. they want those guns because the police have those guns. and they believe that they will have to fight the police, and they want to be as heavily armed as the police when that happens. that is the underlying philosophy. >> so they think in terms of a barricade situation where it's them against the law. >> absolutely. >> congresswoman, that is new. it used to be they would say we're sportsmen, we're hunters, and then they would say whatever, self-protection if you live in a tough neighborhood or whatever. now they openly say we have to fight the government. that's pretty close to insurrection time, isn't it? we have to be ready to fight the government? >> this is what we've been hearing for a couple
're pretty good at calling out people. i learned that! i learned that, let's see, wayne lapierre is extreme on guns and paul krugman is extreme on debt. they sort of occupy their own alternative universeses and the question is whether the republicans are going to have the guts to stand up to lapierre and whether democrats will be strong enough to walk away from krugman. but we'll see what happens. if it's way too early, what time is it? >> it's time for "morning joe". >> tell us. >> it's time for "morning joe," but now it's time for "the daily rundown" with chuck todd. have a great day. happy valentine's day! >>> the posturing around chuck hagel's nomination for a defense secretary, well, it's getting murkier by the minute. are republicans gearing up to deny an up or down vote for the pentagon kick before the weekend? >>> president obama's road show policy push hits atlanta today and we'll take a deep dive into the options and odds of the president having to fall back on executive actions, because his policies won't go anywhere in congress. >>> and the republican ruckus over karl rove's con
for calling. i think i think she is right. people at the nra, i think wayne lapierre needs a psyche evaluation. >> that's who she is referring to. >>. >> a total lune and a mainiac. i want to leave you with this. atlanta, another school shooting. when is this going to end? when is congress going to get to work? i want to talk to those who want to vote against a background check. don't go anywhere. we have another great hour for you. >> this is "the bill press show." [ music ] >> we are back on the bill press show. as bill always says, there is a seat here for you at the table. give us a call at 1866-55-press. you know, i've got to tell you, with all of the gun shootings that we are could not to go see all across the country, it really is time for us to act now. we are going to have a conversation. you want to be here. we are going to give you the unemployment numbers as they come out hot off of the press and you don't want to miss our conversation about gun and mental illness and make sure another sandy hook doesn't happen again or the shooting in
